About me

I work from home in Sheffield as an integrative therapist, this means that I have an understanding of different ways of working and can draw on these to respond to each individual's needs.

My focus is on creating trust through listening with empathy and responding with compassion, in the belief that you have the solutions to your problems, and having someone alongside you in the process of discovering this can bring the change you need.

Training, qualifications & experience

I gained a Diploma in Counselling from SPACE (Sheffield Psychotherapy and Counselling Education) in 2017 and have experience of working with students at the University of Sheffield counselling service, adults with eating disorders for a local charity, and Contact counselling cooperative offering open ended affordable therapy.

I also draw on extensive experience in health and social care from working with children and families in the justice system as a qualified professional, and commissioning health and wellbeing services for children in public health.

This gives me a broad range of experience of health and social needs and a good understanding of local services .

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
